Only weeks after Google merged its key YouTube and YouTube applications on Roku, the company is back with a similar update for the latest Vizio Smart TVs. Assuming you have a supported model, you will be able to access YouTube TV from the regular YouTube application, eliminating the need to install and switch between two different products.
At the beginning of last month, Google announced that it had merged YouTube television with the main YouTube application on Roku. The change followed a dispute between the two companies that resulted in Roku removing the TV YouTube application, but leaving the main offer YouTube.
Google had said at the time that it would make this modification to other devices “over time”. This week brings the last update of this case, with Google revealing that YouTube TV is now merged with the main YouTube application for Vizio users who have one of the company’s 2020 or 2021 SmartCast devices.
YouTube TV is located in the main YouTube application located on the left side of the interface. You will need to scroll to the bottom of the side navigation bar. Users will need to connect to their YouTube TV account the first time they launch the service from the main YouTube application, according to Google.
The deployment on another series of devices makes this merger more than a workaround of the roku problem. It is difficult to know which peripherals can be in the pipeline to get youTube TV support in the YouTube main application, but users can keep tabs on the Twitter account of the platform for future futures. day.
